Moore (ankle) will play in Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Jim Eichenhofer of Pelicans.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore was given a probable designation earlier Wednesday, so he was already fully expected to be cleared against the Trail Blazers. It remains to be seen what kind of role he'll have, but the Pelicans could opt to limit his minutes with Wednesday's game essentially meaningless. If Moore doesn't move into the starting lineup, look for Tim Frazier and Jrue Holiday to work as the team's backcourt duo.

Moore (ankle) is listed as probable for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Trail Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

Moore was held out of Saturday's matchup with the Warriors because of a sprained left ankle, but the added time off has allowed him to make a full recovery and he's expected to take the court Wednesday. It remains to be seen if he'll reclaim a spot in the starting lineup next to Jrue Holiday or if Tim Frazier will stick there, so look for further clarification on that front as tip off nears.

Moore (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Lakers, Serena Winters of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore will be missing a second straight game with a lingering ankle injury and it remains to be seen if he'll be cleared in time for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Trail Blazers. With Moore out, Tim Frazier should draw another start in the backcourt, while Jordan Crawford and Quinn Cook could see a bigger role off the bench.

Moore (ankle) has been downgraded from probable to questionable for Tuesday's matchup against the Lakers, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore was sidelined for Saturday's loss to the Warriors due to a minor left ankle sprain and it was expected that he would take the floor Tuesday against the Lakers after two days of rest. But, his condition seemingly hasn't improved as much as Moore and the Pelicans were anticipating, resulting in him being downgraded to questionable. It's unclear whether or not he would return to the starting five if he's cleared to play. The team could opt to send out Saturday's starting backcourt duo of Jrue Holiday and Tim Frazier once more, regardless of Moore's status.

EDGE Analysis

Moore was initially deemed probable after missing Saturday's loss to Golden State, but he's apparently still dealing with discomfort in his sprained ankle. Look for the Pelicans to offer a more definitive update on Moore's status closer to game-time.

Moore (ankle) is considered probable for Tuesday's game against the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

The guard was held out of Saturday's loss to Golden State with a minor ankle sprain, but with two full days of rest, he's expected to return to action Tuesday. It's unclear if Moore will return to the starting lineup, or if the team will again go with Tim Frazier and Jrue Holiday in the backcourt, as was the case Saturday.

Moore (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game versus the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

The Pelicans will also be without DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis in the frontcourt, so they figure to be short-handed against the Warriors. Moore got the start at shooting guard over a struggling Tim Frazier Friday, but was forced out after providing ten points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3PT), two rebounds, one assist, and a steal across 18 minutes. Look for Frazier and Jordan Crawford to see most of the backcourt minutes beside Jrue Holiday.

Moore is questionable to return to Friday's game against the Nuggets due to a sprained ankle.

EDGE Analysis

Moore got the starting nod at shooting guard over a struggling Tim Frazier. He had posted ten points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3PT), two rebounds, one assist, and a steal across 18 minutes before suffering the injury. Expect an update on his status when the team provides more information.

Moore will get the start at shooting guard for Friday's game against the Nuggets, Pelicans' radio announcer Sean Kelley reports.

EDGE Analysis

Moore will presumably be replacing Tim Frazier in the starting unit, but they team has not unveiled their full starting lineup at this point. The 28-year-old has averaged 10.6 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 3.0 assists across 26.9 minutes in 21 starts this season.

Moore contributed 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one block across 28 minutes in a 134-131 loss to the Nuggets on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

On a night when both teams shot better than 50 percent from the floor and committed no more than 10 turnovers apiece, almost every Pelicans regular benefited from an enhanced stat line, and Moore was no exception. He turned in just his third double-digit scoring outing of the last eight games, and rounded out the box score nicely. Moore will continue to serve as one of the team's top bench options while the Pelicans keep their slim playoff hopes alive heading into the final week of the season, but because he'll often share the floor with high-usage players in Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday, it will be difficult to count on him for consistent offense.
